recipe for cookies

There was some interest in the recipe for the cookies I posted about earlier today. Here tis:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup dry milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

Mix the sugar, shortening, milk and water in a saucepan. Heat until the mixture boils. Remove from heat, add other ingredients and mix well. Allow to cool slightly then drop on waxed paper by spoonful. When cool, store in tight container.

What kind of shortening do you use in them?

I used Crisco this time. I've never noticed a difference in taste from brand used over the years. You just have to be very sure it hasn't oxidized. I made that mistake once--I had to throw the cookies out they were so nasty.

I grew up on Crisco, and I still use it on rare occasions to fry chicken. But it is SO BAD for you, Dave, I can't believe you put it in cookies!

Michele said don't!!
